Minister Barbara Sullivan, associate from Victory for the World UCC, Stone 
Mountain, GA, TAP graduate, and recent alum of the GTE trip to Thailand, is 
recovering from a serious illness. Please hold Minister Sullivan and her family in 
your prayers. Cards may be mailed to the church. 



Rev. Christophe Ringer, pastor of Howard Congregational Church UCC in 
Nashville, TN has suffered another major loss. His step-father, the Rev. Dr. Hycel 
B. Taylor, former pastor of Howard UCC, died this past January. Now his 
biological father, Darryl Ringer, has made his transition. He died Tuesday, April 
10th and the memorial service was Saturday, April 14th in Chicago. As he did with 
his step-father, Christophe offered the eulogy. Please do keep the Ringer family in 
your prayers. 



A message sent to the Conference from Rev. Joyce Myers Brown concerning her 
husband Rev. Ed Brown, both from Central Congregational Church, Atlanta, GA. 

Dear Family & Friends, 

Most of you know that my beloved husband Ed Brown, at 93, is struggling with a 
number of health issues. He was at Emory University Hospital April 3 -6 with 
severe dehydration, and a number of other concerns. The last 12 days he has 
been at A. G. Rhodes Health and Rehab, here in Atlanta, on our Wesley Woods 
campus, where we live in an apartment (WW Towers, independent living). Ed 
has just been moved from a semi-private to a private room at A. G. Rhodes, 314, 
which is a huge help not only for the peace and quiet but also because there is a 
window and the trees beyond. 

We do not know what lies ahead. Ed has Physical and Occupational Therapy and 
they are also working to improve his nutrition (he has very little appetite and had 
lost a lot of weight; regained some). He has needed more i.v. fluids and this is 
still a concern. We had a Care Conference today and the short of it is that no 
decisions will probably be made for another 5 weeks... 

Ed's health has been declining for some time before all this and he is very weak - 
but does not realize just how weak nor why the need for all this therapy. Please 
do keep him, and me, in your prayers. These are very difficult days for both of us. 

Thank you all for caring and for your many thoughtful messages. 

Bless you!

Igniting Leadership speaker 
encourages churches to follow 
Disney model of 'immersive 
environment' 
The minute the Rev. 
Christopher Perry began to 
present a link between the 
success of the Disney empire 
and the bold possibilities of the 
church experience, his 
audience was all ears.
